Light tune for dark days.

Melbourne duo, Slum Sociable, dissects anxiety in the new soulful electronica single “Moby Bryant” where we get submerged into an intimate meditation. The sharp percussions and smudged synths create a soundscape that stands between the edge of dream and reality. “Moby Bryant” melodically radiates the inner struggle people with anxiety go through as they try to stay grounded and keep their sanity together while they experience a surrealistic fear throughout their body. Play below:

Comprised of Edward Quinn (production/keys/guitar) and Miller Upchurch (vocals/percussion), Slum Sociable was born out of a university assignment four years ago and since then has become one of Australia’s fastest growing acts.
